Prior to this role, he worked for the Victorian Clinical Genetics Services (VCGS) as a genetic counsellor for 15 years and played an integral role in the establishment of new clinical genetics services, including throughout rural Victoria. He worked in London at the Heart Hospital managing the translation of individual genetic research findings into clinical care.
